ONTOLOGY SUPPORT FOR PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT - Successful Application of Ontologies in Product Development

Reiner Anderl, Kai Mecke, Andre Sprenger, Oliver Weitzmann

Abstract

Today knowledge management is a very important factor for the success of enterprises. To support knowledge management ontologies have been established. In the product development a lot of knowledge, methods and workflows are used, which have to be protected, managed and distributed. The challenge to manage the diversity of product development knowledge is to combine knowledge management methods and requirements of product development. For this purpose we present functions to support access rights for ontologies, integration of new information, release and storage of information (workflow). Another function to support the efficient work with knowledge is to use templates in order to reduce time and mistakes while integrating information and knowledge in the system. These functions are integrated into the ontology-based product development system (OPDS); the system fulfills the requirements of the product development and used knowledge representation forms.
